As we gear up for the excitement of our 17th annual Festival, we’re thrilled to announce an exciting change. We’re expanding the Festival from Manhattan to the dynamic borough of Brooklyn, with our renowned Pier Parties and Grand Tasting moving to the Invesco QQQ Campus at Brooklyn Army Terminal.

This expansion allows us to embrace the energy and diversity of Brooklyn’s culinary community while maintaining the essence of the NYCWFF we all know and love. This shift promises a fresh gastronomic experience at one central culinary campus, with enhanced tenting so that we can celebrate rain or shine.

This page is your comprehensive guide to all things NYCWFF at the Invesco QQQ Campus at Brooklyn Army Terminal, making planning and transportation to and from our Festival effortless.
